Saruni Samburu is a 'design' lodge located 7km from Samburu National Reserve, in Kenya's wild north. Surrounded by a 95,000 hectares private conservancy and perched on top of a spectacular viewpoint, the lodge offers a first-class safari experience in a totally un-spoilt environment, off-the-beaten-track and very close to the wildlife.
Saruni Samburu features six tented cottages and a large swimming pool with a dramatic view over Samburu, an area for massage and beauty treatments called Samburu Wellbeing Space, and several areas to use as hides or view points for the waterholes that attract elephant, reticulated giraffe, zebra, oryx and all the species that make Kalama so special.
In addition to the game drives to Samburu National reserve, Buffalo Springs National Reserve and West Gate Conservancy, activities will include night and morning game drive in Kalama Conservancy, rock climbing, professionally-led game walks, bush dinners and star gazing. The traditions and semi-nomadic heritage of the local Samburu people are an important part of the experience. Led by professional Samburu guides, guests enjoy a new dimension of this rightfully popular region: the feeling of exclusivity, of having an incredibly large area totally to their own, and a high level of comfort and tailor-made service.
Saruni Samburu has its own private airstrip near the Kalama Wildlife Conservancy headquarters, but it is also easily served by the other airstrips of the area where scheduled flights land.
